An in-depth look at camps

Fifty-two million: according to the United Nations, the number of human beings who are forced to live in a place that is foreign to them. In a tent, under a tin sheet or slate roofs, most refugees have found shelter in camps – of which there have never been as many as there are today. To illustrate the diversity of this new reality, ARTE journalists chose four different locations in Nepal, Iraq, Lebanon and Chad. In each refugee camp, a film director, a photographer, a writer and a cartoonist were given free rein to describe their experiences. Their work is being shown on television Saturdays in ARTE Reportage and on the ARTE Info website – each time taking you to a new destination from September through December. In the interactive experience “Refugees –Report from the ground”, you can become a special correspondent for ARTE and produce your own multimedia reports. This project has emerged after an encounter between Marco Nassivera (ARTE News Director) and Régis Wargnier (Director). It then received support from UNHCR.
